    If you are feeling slightly disappointed with several outcomes during the Sochi Games, please turn your attention to the fabulous Shoshi Games.

    An anonymous brilliant Tumblr user created a highly amusing page featuring Zosia Mamet's Girls character Shoshana Shapiro (also known as Shoshi) participating in various Winter Olympics events and like, winning them all.

    Thanks to Photoshop and some action-packed snapshots of a diverse crowd of Olympians, we can see the quirky and bubbly fictional twenty something humorously competing in different disciplines.

    "#shoshigames. Like, let's get it trending, people," @ShoshiGames2014 tweeted on Wednesday, shortly after the Tumblr page launched.

    HBO tweeted "This @Tumblr takes the gold medal in @girlsHBO/ #Olympics2014 mashups," while Lena Dunham gave her seal of approval calling it "magic."

    NEWS: Matt Lauer will fill in (again) for Bob Costas on primetime Winter Olympics coverage

    No word yet from Shoshi herself but we are willing to bet Mamet is loving it. Because, how could you not.

    For example, the witty caption accompanying this focused photo of Shoshi ski jumping?

    "How do you say OMG in cyrillic?"

    But this focused snapshot of a flying Soshi is merely the beginning: she can be seen performing ice skating routines in glitzy ensembles, properly positioning a curling stone, riding around in a bobsled and much more.

    All hail the Shoshi Games!
